Rick and Morty Season 6 Ep 10 is the tenth and final episode of season 6 in this scifi fantasy action-adventure animated sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The series follows the misadventures of cynical mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his good-hearted but fretful grandson Morty Smith, who split their time between domestic life and inter-dimensional adventures.

Entitled “Ricktional Mortpoon’s Rickmas Mortcation”, Rick and Morty Season 6 Ep 10 is ostensibly the X’mas episode as well as the season 6 finale. Remember the first episode of this season when Rick Prime was introduced? Remember how every Youtuber was going on and on about how season 6 would focus on the lore? Haha! That of course never happened and the folks behind Rick and Morty rubbed it in here where the search for Rick Prime is teased but that’s not what the finale is about.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Ep 10 explains why Rick seemed so uncharacteristically ‘nice’ in the previous episode – it was a Rick bot! This was done to distract Morty and the family while Rick hunkered down to search for Rick Prime. And… this ruse was only discovered because the Rick bot got Morty a genuine lightsaber as X’mas gift and then the end of the world is threatened due to the usual Morty fuck-up! Everything escalates as our favourite President of the USA gets involved as well. Hi-jinks ensue!!
Loads of commentary on how Disney has fucked up the Star Wars franchise is developed here which is as usual meta and hilarious! Once more the folks behind Rick and Morty have their finger(s) firmly on the pop culture pulse. At the end of the day, the finale does not advance the lore an iota BUT it’s still a hugely entertaining watch. Maybe Season 7 then – the search for Rick Prime? Who knows, eh???
